Lighting a candle is our way of expressing our deepest prayers to God. For us Catholics, candles symbolize the light of Christ. I personally believe that lighting candles is a form of thanksgiving and reverence for Him.

For me, this is a piece of heaven as I am now in a work-work state (as I might call it). This place is where I spent one of the most peaceful moments of my life, and I am looking forward to the day I can relive the moment. This is in Camiguin Island, Philippines.
During the Advent Season, we traditionally attend masses in the evening called the Simbang Gabi at our Cathedral. I particularly liked to go to the church because of the very attractive light works they put on the park. This photo is one of the decorated portions of the church, and this is the statue of St. Joseph, Jesus’ father on Earth.
